A trip to the past by way of oxen!

 It was fun to get the big boys out and put them to work pulling my new/used sleigh.  They seemed to enjoy the beautiful day and brisk winter air.  There is something amazing about working these guys vs. driving a tractor.  Don't get me wrong, I like my John Deere!  The quiet, peaceful connection to our past does something to your mind and spirit.  It has a way of connecting you to what it must have been like to do things the way it was done for thousands of years vs. modern "warp speed" living in 2022.  I wouldn't want to return to full time farming with oxen, but I am so grateful for the lessons these oxen are teaching me and my family!
